Rising star of 2023, Wamiqa Gabbi, is set to make history in the Indian entertainment industry by taking on the role of India’s first female detective in the highly anticipated web series, “Charlie Chopra and the Mystery of Solang Valley.” This thrilling murder mystery is an official adaptation of Agatha Christie’s beloved novel, “The Sittaford Mystery,” and is helmed by renowned director Vishal Bhardwaj.
Known for her exceptional performances and versatility, Wamiqa Gabbi is excited to lead this groundbreaking project.

Charlie Chopra is a character that I have poured my heart into, and I can’t wait for the audience to join me on this thrilling journey. It’s not often that such roles are written, and to play a character featured in the title of the project is even more special.
